Publisher's Summary

Dilly is devastated: with her husband unable to work and four children already at home, they cannot afford to feed their new-born baby. Heartbroken, she delivers her baby girl to the Farthing family, who have just lost their own daughter to measles. This act of desperation will change the lives of both families irrevocably. But when the chance for true love finally comes, will Dilly choose family over her own happiness?

Struggled!!

What disappointed you about Dilly's Sacrifice?

Not sure why - but really struggled to get into this story line it seemed to go on and on forever about something and nothing! Left it to one side with 2 hours listening to go.

Any additional comments?

Think this is one of the least enjoyable books i have ever listened to - even considered applying for a refund!!

I really enjoyed this book

this book is really good, my only gripe is that the narrator puts a lot of emphasis on the word AND, & there is some lot of them. I think it would have been better for a brief gap whilst telling the story. but it is only a minor annoyance

Good story

The storyline was good as were the characters, but the ending was extremely disappointing. Very well narrated bringing the characters alive.
